CD-adapco hosts the second in their series of free online webinars; this time featuring their revolutionary Polyhedral meshing technology. As well as describing the benefits of polyhedral meshes over traditional topologies, the webinar will demonstrate how polyhedral meshes can be automatically generated and will discuss some of the theory behind them.

The webinar will be held for European audiences at 10am London Time (GMT 9am, BST 10am, CET 11am, EET 12pm) on Monday, September 19.

For North American audiences, the webinar will be held on Monday, September 26 at 12pm EST (1pm CST, 2pm MST, 3pm PST).

CD-adapco's Computational Fluid Dynamics code STAR-CCM+ utilises a unique new technology that allows high quality "polyhedral" cells to be created and used in simulation. Extensive validation has demonstrated that polyhedral meshes offer near hexahedral accuracy, with all the automatic meshing benefits of tetrahedra. Professor Milovan Peric, CD-adapco's Director of Technology, explains, “Recent tests have shown that, for equivalent or better accuracy, polyhedral meshes converge up to ten times faster than tetrahedra, typically delivering a speedup of 400 - 500%”, he says, "Polyhedral CFD delivers more for less: more accurate solutions, using fewer cells and ultimately greatly reduced human and computing resources".

Dr Dennis Nagy, CD-adapco's Vice President of Business Development, acknowledges that polyhedral meshing is the first payoff of CD-adapco's investment in solver technology. "While other CFD vendors are content to simply build upon their existing aging software architectures, with STAR-CCM+, we decided to go back to the drawing-board and build our solutions upon the most advanced technology currently available", says Dennis. “The arrival of polyhedral meshing represents a watershed for industrial CFD".

"I am confident that the arrival of our polyhedral meshing technology spells the end for tetrahedra as a useful tool for CFD", says CD-adapco President Steve MacDonald. "Tetrahedra - as well as the CFD codes which continue to rely on them - are doomed to become a thing of the past".
